Is it possible to get a refund for missed practice or events?Nybora dues are non-refundable for any reason at all. This is consistent with similar sporting activities and similar to how a ski pass or ticket would be treated by a ski area. We strive to keep the price of Nybora the lowest possible while still providing a top-shelf experience. We keep our pricing at a break-even point, we think you’ll be hard pressed to find a similar program of similar quality anywhere in the country. Most of expenses the program incurs are fixed. For all of these reasons and a few more, we are unable to offer refunds for any reason.

Do I have to buy a Hyland season pass?
A season pass is not required, but recommended. The vast majority of Nyborians buy a season pass. When you’re on Nybora , you’ll want to ski every free minute. Almost any time you go to Hyland, you’re sure to see fellow Nyborians laying it down in the park. Why not be able to join them whenever you can?

Does practice ever get cancelled?
Rarely! We’re Scandinavians from Minnesota!  Every once and awhile, it does get so cold that in becomes dangerous to be outside and the ski area will close. In those extreme cases, Nybora will post on Facebook and Twitter that practice has been cancelled. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

What does “nybora” mean?
Progression! Nybora is the blending of two Swedish words, “ny” which means “new” and “borja” which means “start.”  A new start is progression and progression is what Nybora is all about.
